    a. The Geometric average return is 1.72%

    b. The Arithmetic average return is 1.75%

    c. The Dollar weighted average return is 2.61%

    Explanation:

    a) In order to calculate the time-weighted geometric average return we would have to calculate first the Holding period return as follows:

    Holding period return = (200 - 190) / 190 = 5.263%

    Hence, Geometric average return = (1 +.05263) ^ (1/3) - 1 = 1.72%

    b) To calculate time-weighted arithmetic average return we have to make the following calculation:

    Arithmetic average return = 5.263% / 3 = 1.75%

    c) To calculate time-weighted arithmetic average return we would have to make the following calculation:

    Dollar weighted average return=-190*3 + 200 / (1+r) + 200 / (1+r) ^2 + 200 / (1+r) ^3 = 0

    = 2.61%
